and supervisor cohen and dr. campbell and the whole public health staff have always had dialogue and been concerned especially when there is an uptick in june of this year on violent crime and homicides in san francisco. and, so, we've been working together on creating a program which i announced some months ago, the ipo program, the ability to work on things that would interrupt and intervene earlier in the behavior patterns of people that would be both victims and perpetrators of violent crime in our city. to support the police department and law enforcement system of doing more predictive policing using both data and technology to help us do that. and then, of course, i think the most important part is to organize our communities and work with community-based organizations, families, religious groups, and everybody that's on the ground to find more ways to intervene in violent behavior out there and utilize resources such as education systems, our community jobs programs, others that might allow people to go in different direction. the unfortunate and very tragic incident in connecticu

chief, our health department, and certainly being led by supervisor cohen whose district has experienced an inordinate amount of violence throughout this year. we talk about it all the time. what can we do? for one, the ammunition that has been designed especially by law enforcement for military use has no reason to be in our homes and on our streets. and, so, we are introducing legislation focused on what has been labeled to be the hollow point bullets, but there are other types of bullets that are designed for more massive destruction of the human body that should only be in the hands of law enforcement and the military, and not in the civilian hands at all. and we want to ban them from possession in our city of san francisco. so, we're introducing legislation aimed at that kind of ballistics ammunition and banning them from possession in our city. the second piece of legislation is we believe that any person who purchases more than 500 rounds of any type of ammunition, notice should go to our police chief so that we have time to investigate as to reasons why that purchase should be ma

a public health emergency. elizabeth cohen joins us now. what do health officials mean when they use the word epidemic? >> it gets very technical. i'll boil it down here. basically, people are getting sick and dying from the flu in certain numbers. when those numbers get high enough, we call it an epidemic. i personally don't really care that much about that word. i'll tell you why. the flu season nearly always reaches epidemic levels. even if it's just like a moderate plain old, you know, normal season. so i think we shouldn't get focused too much on that word. we instead should focus on what we're seeing here which is what can you do to avoid getting the flu which is getting a flu shot and doing things like washing your hands and staying away from people who look sick. john? >> it doesn't feel like just a normal flu season here. i have to tell you. a lot of people sick here in the office. a lot of people sick where i live. governor cuomo declared a public health emergency. so since we're talking about terminology, what does that mean? >> let me go back to what you said before. this

you work with us? michael cohen phoned me up the next day. can we cut $40 million out of this project? it was one person more responsible than any others, it's tony irons, was the architect that was responsible for the revitalization of city hall who came to my office and said, we cannot abandon this. we can't walk away from this project. we have an opportunity to really take a lot of our values and principles, particularly raising the bar as we did as a city on our green building standards, mandating the most aggressive green building standards for private construction anywhere in the united states. and showcasing them in this new building. >> the city for the sfpuc, it was critical that the building stay as a lead building. the easiest thing to do to cut out millions of dollars, let's just go from lead platinum to lead gold. but that wasn't the objective. this needed to be the best example of energy conservation of any office building in the united states. >> we became involved in the san francisco public utilities headquarter project during the time when the project was at a stand

about hedge funds being very aggressive and we all know there's the wagons circling around steve cohen. can you tell me about that case? >> i don't talk about particular cases ever. >> okay. in terms of the areas of financial services in which you -- that skirt the line, if you will. can you name areas that you think are more aggressive than others? >> there's nothing wrong with being aggressive. the problem is when people think that they can get as close to the line as possible and they aspire to the minimum, just staying over the line. there are too many people who get the wrong message and then cross the line. a lot of times they gallop over the line. and that's where we come in. part of the disheartening thing of the insider tradingases we brought over the last years is you're finding that misbehavior in a lot of sectors. not just trading firms but also inside companies. but the problem is it's all over. we have to make sure the enforcement efforts address all of it. >> you stepped up your efforts. you've become more sophisticated and aggressive. for instance, the wiretapping. ever

. >> thanks, lee said. the next question is for elise cohen with the national consumer law center. in the context of the qualified mortgage definition -- in your opinion what is a rebuttable presumption of compliance meeting for consumers? >> thank you. first, let me applaud the bureau for the detailed articulation of the rebuttable presumption for subprime borrowers that appears to be included in the rule. we look forward to reading it. including the use of residuals and, as an articulate it reason for rebutting the presumptions. what is it? it is the opportunity to show that your loan was forcibly unaffordable when it was made, even if it meets the definition of a qualified mortgage. it is a chance to save your home if you can prove your case. while the qualified mortgage definition promotes more sustainable landing, there are always gaps, like there were after h.o.p.a., and new products developed. this helps address those instances. beyond consumers, this also relates to how the market functions. the main goal of the rule is to incentivize sustainable lending and good behavior.
